|Mike Richard - Affections, Affects 1-4 (for speaking/ singing performers) [MMM027] - Mike Richard|
Mike Richard was born in Santa Ana, CA, in 1967. He is an Image-Music-Text-Theater Re-Writer, independent researcher, and undisciplined theorist. His compositions at CalArts ("text-scores"), studying with Michael Pisaro, enable other performers to create a "secondary symbolic network," formations of collectives, or "sociological constellations."

Number fourteen at Serein marks the most welcome return of Muhr, the man responsible for the first release in the Serein catalog many moons ago. Whilst Muhr has contributed many tracks to other labels in the interim, we're honoured to present his latest offering, which may be his most confident effort yet.

|Various Artists - Intelligent Toys 2 (Sutemos007) - Various Artists|
Intelligent Toys 2 8 months have passed since the release of the first volume of Intelligent Toys. We thought that is impossible to do a better compilation for virtual label at that time. But as the second volume proves it is always possible to do better Â you just have to want and do your best to make it real. At some points it has even overcome our biggest expectations. So there is hardly anything more to say Â 24 names 9 of which have never published their music on virtual labels can tell y...

With the viscerality of the best pre-Velvet pump-organ dronings (or is it rather the sound of the ru-be, the reed instrument of the south-east asian Ma-peoples), energized with the wholly contemporary dynamics of a dj-set and sparkling with the post-neurotic kinetics of glitch (very much like a good champagne), no simple feelings will completely convey the affect that Arturas Bumsteinas' latest piece brings about (and i haven't even mentioned the title yet, casting it's elliptic semiotic shadow ...
